This review was shot at the same time we shot Episode 50, which was Westy 12. I decided not to release it at the time because I was extremely disappointed with the sound quality. This review was the one that made me finally get an external mic, which every beer reviewer should have!! I finally decided that based on the rarity of the beer and the time we put into it that I needed to release this review. So with a bit of editing and some audio filtering I cleaned it up a bit and hopefully came out with a solid review. Be gentle it was out first review with more then 2 people and it was outside! But big thanks to Dustin for providing this one and I just hope the review does this epic beer justice! Now who wants to have their bottle of Splinter Blue reviewed 🙂
The transformation of Scratch #3-2007 to Splinter Gold has been a slow rest in oak wine barrels dosed with brettanomyces. During a two-year aging period the horsy flavors of the brett combined with the Westmalle yeast used during primary fermentation to create a complex blend of flavors. Bone-dry and 12% abv, Splinter Gold is highly carbonated.
